Library offers reading challenge for children

There’s a usual way to use the alphabet in reading.

Then there’s using reading to spell out the alphabet.

The Warren Public Library is having a “Read Your Way Through the Alphabet Challenge” for children ages 2 through 12.

“Read one book for each letter of the alphabet,” Children’s Librarian Susan Slater said.

It’s not just reading any 26 books — but that is the target number.

“Use author names or book titles for each letter,” Slater said. “For example, Dog Man, by Dav Pilkey, could count toward the letter D, M, or P. You may only use each book for one letter, which results in 26 different books being read.”

There are Read Your Way through the Alphabet forms available outside of the Children’s Department or on the Children’s Programs page at www.warrenlibrary.org

Adults can track the books they read to their little ones to allow younger children to participate.

“All participants will receive a reading medal plus have their name entered into a drawing for several $50 Walmart gift cards,” Slater said. “Forms are due by Jan. 17, 2022.”

Anyone with questions may contact Slater at (814) 723-4650 ext. 126.
